I’ve been craving Mexican a lot recently, in fact I have a date with a friend to go out for Mexican food tomorrow night, free espinaca dip, mmmmm! Love those coupons Clearly my cravings were acting up when I made our meal plan for the last week. Chicken enchiladas (I’ll post those later) and steak fajitas! Tonight we made the fajitas and they were delicious and really easy to whip up. So much cheaper than the ones you’d pay $10-15 for at a Mexican restaurant too! I made these with a side of cilantro lime rice which was good but not excellent. I went ahead and put it in my fajitas (Chipotle style!) since the rice was a bit mushy and not very appetizing as a side dish! Fajita marinade was great though! Thanks to the hubby for cooking them up! We cooked the meat and veggies in our wok since the grill pan smokes up the apartment! I found this recipe by doing a search within my Google Reader, I love love love Google Reader! I can always do a search there and find great recipes by other food bloggers that I know and love and this was no exception!
Steak Fajitas (adapted from Joelens Culinary Adventures)
1 lb beef skirt steak or round, cut in thin strips
colorful bell pepper slices of your choice (We used red pepper)
1/4 large red onion, sliced
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons worchestershire sauce
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
pinch of kosher salt
fresh ground black pepper to taste
olive oil for cooking
In a grill pan, add a touch of olive oil.
Add beef strips and all ingredients except the bell peppers and onions (We marinated the steak in the sauce for 2 hours, then added the steak and the marinade to the wok for cooking)
Allow the beef to cook through.
When beef is almost cooked, add onions.
When onions have slightly softened, add bell peppers.
Season with additional salt & pepper to taste.
